Last Sunday, Palm Beach Atlantic University volunteers joined over two thousand veterans as they marched on Clematis Street. Held for the past 11 years in downtown West Palm Beach, the Veterans Day Parade honors veterans in our community, and leading it this year was the 2018 Veterans Day Parade Grand Marshal Judge Ted Booras.
This is the third year that PBA has participated in the parade by helping direct traffic before and during the parade. This Workship service project was led by AmericCorps VISTA, Tensia Clark, whose parents are veterans and PBA alumi.
The parade is produced each year by the Palm Beach County Veterans Committee, and generously supported by the City of West Palm Beach. The Veterans Day Parade included more participants than ever before with veteran’s groups, bands, show cars, motorcycles, floats, armed services vehicles and a Car Show featuring over 100 vehicles at the end of the parade route in Flagler Park. It traveled from west to east on Clematis starting at Rosemary and ending at Flagler Drive.
